The money  we spent on Buendia is not the problem, its the other 60million of the Greasy money.

Well as per Buendia I wouldnít write Bailey off yet.

On Ings heís fine as an addition to the squad. The problem is Watkins and him canít play together - so you have to make a choice.

Which is fine isnít it. Not many clubs can boast two strikers with the quality we have. We were bemoaning the lack of back up, and now we've got one, albeit one that wants first team football.

I haven't written him off but we will have got very little return on the investment so far and I am not convinced that Ings was an astute piece of business either.

As it should be. A quality player shouldn't settle for the back up position and certainly not with a club not in Europe. If Ings want's to be playing football he needs to be putting pressure on Watkins.  Watkins needs to feel that pressure and turn missed chances into goals. The same for every position.  There should never be a case of first name on the team sheet, Martinez is the exception at the moment literally and figuratively.
